Visual studio solution with many projects only deploy one...

Hi Experts,

I have a solution in VS 2008, which contains many projects. One of these projects is a mobile app and another a website. When I select the website as the default project and run to debug, VS2008 still asks me where I want to deploy the mobile app.
Is there a way of running the website in debug with out the mobile app compiling and deploying...

I know I could just open the website alone, but I don't want to.

There are no depandancies between the two projects.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the Configuration Manager in the Build menu to change the actions taken when your solution is built (which should be occurring when you try to run/debug your solution). Just uncheck the build checkbox for your mobile application. You can still manually build it by right clicking on the project file and selecting Build.

Hi,

Did you try unchecking the project in Configuration Manager? Go to Build/Configuration Manager and uncheck the projects you don't want compiled for both Release and Debug compile options.

Hope that helps,
